Parenting today is one of the most rewarding and challenging endeavors. Parenting requires different skills during your children's development, and can even differ depending on where you are in your own emotional, financial, or spiritual development. And since every child develops differently, parenting can be confusing and arduous. With the variety of family structure in today's society (e.g., blended families, homosexual couples parenting, adoptive parenting, single parenting, etc.), sometimes one feels overwhelmed or unsure. Good parenting usually takes a lot of time and commitment. The good news is that knowing how to be a good parent is relatively easy. The counselors at Luminent who specialize in this area can teach you the importance of healthy boundaries, effective discipline techniques, developmental stages and what to expect, normal age-appropriate behaviors, the importance of consistency, and the importance of raising a child with healthy self-esteem. Sometimes you just need a little help with understanding an issue or knowing how to deal with an issue. A professional counselor can talk to you about your individual values, goal, and priorities to help you become the best parent you can be. A counselor can not only provide support and knowledge but can give you the skills needed to take on any parental situation effectively and successfully. This can create not only a peaceful home environment but offer a sense of self-confidence and self-esteem.
What can you expect from telephone counseling?
Using the phone to talk with a counselor is not much different than what you could expect from an office visit. The therapy we offer at Healing Telephone Counselling, by way of the telephone, can be as effective, or even more effective, than the traditional in-office visits.
You may have anxieties or concerns about office visits and may not be as willing to open up and truly express your feelings and thoughts because it seems too overwhelming or intimidating to sit down, face-to-face with a counselor. By using the telephone, you can discuss without the self-consciousness you may experience sitting across from a mental health professional.
We have many professionals available to help you.
The first step to engaging in therapy is to select from our list of highly qualified professionals. You can do this by both choosing from the list of on this page, and reviewing the different the counselor's profile and listening to an audio introduction if available. Start gradually with a free consultation.
We offer a free 10 minute screening to ensure that you would like to work with that counselor, as it is important that you feel that there is a good match. Once you choose your therapist, you can begin therapy in a way that feels most comfortable to you.
It all starts with learning about your needs.
Your therapist may initially ask you questions about your concerns; explore how your issues are impacting your life, and what are some of your goals. You can choose the pace at which you want to go. This means you can slowly address your issues, or you can choose to share your problems in your initial phone session.
You can expect your counselor to be a non-judgmental, supportive individual. He or she may ask you questions about your thoughts and feelings, and help guide you to exploring issues surrounding your concerns. The counselors at Healing Telephone Counselling are invested in helping you to achieve the goals you would like. They can help provide knowledge and tools that enable you to deal more effectively with your problems.
